Dresden Neustadt

arts and crafts, food and subculture

Dresden's 'other city center' lies across the Elbe river from the old town and is divided into two distinct neighborhoods - the quiet, beautiful Baroque Quarter with its fine restaurants, exquisite boutiques, art galleries and some very traditional craftsmen such as instrument makers - and Outer Neustadt, especially popular with students and young families. This part of town is much less posh, but no less diverse: cafés and restaurants line the streets along with small shops full of wonderful oddities. Creative and exclusive fashion sits side by side with second hand shops and art of all kinds.

At night, a different crowd comes out and turns Outer Neustadt into the party zone of Dresden.
